Georgia's redshirt sophomore defensive back made his long-awaited debut for the Southeastern Conference program last Saturday night inside Sanford Stadium, collecting five tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in the 31-10 win over Appalachian State.
The son of former Minnesota Vikings receiver Jake Reed began his college career at Tulsa in 2015 and sat out last season after transferring.
Appalachian State made the first big play in Saturday's opener when Mountaineers quarterback Taylor Lamb ran 32 yards on a keeper to Georgia's 41-yard line.
The impact of Reed's forced fumble became magnified when the Mountaineers did not pass Georgia's 40 until intercepting backup quarterback Brice Ramsey at the Bulldogs' 21 with 6:38 remaining in a 31-0 game.
Reed played the "star" position against the Mountaineers, a spot that was held last season by Alabama graduate transfer Maurice Smith.
